You’re Not Being Realistic

What have you wanted to do with your life that you’ve not done because someone around you said it wasn’t realistic?
What have you wanted to do in your life but were afraid because someone close to you said, “You probably shouldn’t do that, I don’t want you to be disappointed if it doesn’t work out, it just doesn’t seem realistic.”
